The Distillery-Canary District, Toronto


While all of Toronto’s neighborhoods are unique, the Distillery District is that and then some. Originally founded in 1832, the area is designated as a national historic site and has been ever since 1988. 

This special section of downtown Toronto is bordered by Parliament Street on the east and Cherry Street on the west, and further nestled between the Gardiner Expressway and Mill Street (see map below).

SOTHEBY`S INTERNATIONAL REALTY CANADA, BROKERAGE 170 Bayview Ave, Toronto
The Distillery is now a meeting place all year round with an excellent mix of stores, restaurants, offices and an eclectic mix of street fairs, light shows and entertainment for people of all ages.  This commercial activity is wrapped around by a series of low- and high-rise condominiums providing an anchor to the neighbourhood with more residences planned for the years ahead.

Brand new within the last few years is the Canary District which was named after a long-time famous greasy-spoon that was located in a century-old building along Cherry Street.  It got its start with the construction of brand new residences for the athletes of the 2015 Pan-American games which were then retrofitted with kitchens and finishings for condo owners.

Since 2015, construction of new condos has continued and new releases are coming each year.

There are excellent businesses in place now with more to come as space comes available.  The anchor is the beautiful Cooper Koo YMCA which is at the NE corner of Cherry and Front St East.

There are direct streetcar links from the Distillery Loop on Cherry south of Front which will take you straight downtown along King St East and West.
